Auto updating blog
But even if it looks like auto-updates are really safe, we should ask ourselves if it is always a good idea to enable all of them.When running updates, Word Press looks in the Plugin Directory for new versions of your plugins, and overwrites your files if a plugin with the same name is found.So, if you think to enable background updates for themes and plugins, be sure to set unique names to your scripts. But how can a non-developer user manage auto-updates?But luckily we can ask Word Press to notify us with an email after any update (or attempt).
Depending on the result of the update process, Word Press sends a different email to the administrator address: Especially if you’re planning to extend automatic updates to major core and/or theme and plugin releases, you may prefer to leave result and notification emails enabled, or customize them depending on the result or update typology.
If you’re not a developer, you can control Word Press automatic updates using a plugin.
